One can only take so much bull-crap from politicians sometimes.
A week ago, Jerlun MP Mukhriz Mahathir was alleged to have asked for the closure of vernacular schools — an offence which may see him fined or jailed if found guilty. He later denied this.
I am nobody to judge if Mukhriz Mahathir, son of our ex-Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad has committed sedition. In fact, this post is not about him but the people who have said that our Jerlun MP did commit sedition.
At least two politicians and a lawyer have spoken against Mukhriz’s statement. All claimed that he could (and maybe should) be charged with the Sedition Act. One even wanted the Attorney-General to take appropriate action against him.
That is really funny because as far as I know, the police would not lift a finger unless a police report is lodge. Just a question to parliamentarian Lim Kit Siang — how many police reports have been lodged against Mukhriz Mahathir for his alleged seditious statement? On the other hand, how many police reports on snatch theft incidents have been made and what are the steps taken to address this problem?

It is the beginning of the month. It is time to review and reduce the petrol price again. The reduction has been constant at 15 cents each time the price was reviewed. If this trend continues, the new petrol price will be at RM1.85 per liter — lower than it was before the 78 cents hike a few months back.
I am expecting an announcement on the petrol price reduction tomorrow. The new price (whatever the amount) should come into effect on Tuesday. Any delays should not be more than one or two days. Anything longer than that may be an indication that there will not be another price reduction anytime soon.
The next question is whether the government will peg the petrol price and not allow it to drop any further. I have no problem with that. In fact, I agree that this move can help put aside some funds for 2009 where some say the economy will be worse.
However, after reading and seeing so much, I wonder how much from what is saved will be left at the end of it.
